Default Got a Thai charcoal cooker

While picking up a 20" wok at The Wok Shop to use in my XL BGE, I found this Thai charcoal cooker:


I'd seen a similar cooker earlier in some posts elsewhere by Brethren member Woodmonkey and he recommended them for wok cooking. When I saw this cooker in person I had to get it.

I've been having fun with it and with some different recipes! I tried my 12" wok on it with K briquettes and found the heat a little lacking (even after removing the insert to allow more air in under the Wok):



Experimented using some hanging tender(hanger steak) meat instead of flank (won't do this again - too tender & texture didn't seem right):


Put my 10" CI grate from my Mini BGE onto the cooker & seared the last of the hanging tender:


We enjoyed the grilled hangar steak with the meal:


I've found lump burns hotter in the cooker and have no problems keeping my. 16" wok hot:

Chicken, shallots, fermented black bean sauce, & asparagus:


This was cooked in 2 batches to avoid overloading the wok & combined at the end:




To shut it down & save an unused lump, I put the cooker into the XL BGE and close it up.


The cooker has worked out great so far, especially for some mid-week quick cooks.

Thx for looking!
